Nicholas Jabre

Nicholas Jabre is simultaneously pursuing a research and clinical fellowship in pediatric pulmonology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He received his MD from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in 2013 and completed his residency in pediatrics at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in Saint Petersburg, FL. In 2015, he received Best Mentored Abstract for “Tiotropium as an add-on therapy for children with poorly controlled asthma” as well as the Resident Humanism Award from Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. He participated in the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital ethics committee and sought ways to incorporate bioethics into his residency program curriculum. Nicholas has a special interest in the management of asthma and identifying modifiable risk factors that increase asthma morbidity. During his Hecht-Levi Fellowship, he would like to examine the impact of non-traditional measures of socioeconomic hardship such as housing inadequacy, medical care inaccessibility, and food insecurity on the presence of asthma morbidity factors, in addition to exploring other ethical aspects of pulmonology.
